Glenfarclas 10 YO

Single Malt Whisky
40% Alcohol content


The distillery has six stills which are the largest on Speyside and are heated directly by gas burners. Glenfarclas produce a traditional Speyside malt with a heavy sherry influence. The distillery was first granted a license in 1836 when it was run by Robert Hay. In 1865 it was bought by John Grant and is still owned and run by his descendants, making it truly independent. The company was named Distiller of the Year by Whisky Magazine in 2006.


House Style: Big, complex, malty, sherryish.
